Luk 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Luk 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Luk 6:29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.
Luk 6:30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
Luk 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
Luk 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
Luk 6:33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
Luk 6:34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Luk 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Luk 6:36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Luk 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Luk 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
In the 1930’s, a couple of Jewish kids, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, came up with one of the first, and probably the most famous superheroes, Superman. Superman was an alien child sent to earth as a baby and he was raised by two average humans in America’s heartland. As Superman grows up, he discovers that he has superhuman powers and he uses them for good, and continually intercedes to save humanity. Does Superman sound familiar?
Another character, “Bizarro Superman” shows up in DC Comics in the early 1960’s. He is the exact opposite of Superman and comes from a planet exactly the opposite from Earth called Bizarro World or “htraE”…Earth spelled backwards. Everything on Bizarro World is opposite from the earth and it has its own Code of Conduct: “Us do opposite of all earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!”
One story has the character Bizarro Superman selling Bizarro Bonds…”Guaranteed to lose money for you!”
In 2015, some bizzare things started happening close to my home, at least they were bizzare to an old Bible believer like me.
Bizzare: adjective 1. markedly unusual in appearance, style, or general character and often involving incongruous or unexpected elements; outrageously or whimsically strange; odd:
bizarre clothing; bizarre behavior.
Synonyms: weird, freakish, grotesque; fantastic; unusual, strange, odd.
In my own home county in Washington State, on February 18, 2015, a Benton County Superior Court judge ruled, by Summary Judgment (he did not let it go to a jury trial), that a florist in Richland, WA violated the state’s anti-discrimination law when she denied service to a gay couple for their wedding. The ruling came in a lawsuit (Ingersoll v. Arlene’s Flowers) filed by the ACLU on behalf of Curt Freed and Robert Ingersoll. The court agreed with the suit’s contention that the refusal of Arlene’s Flowers to sell flowers to the couple violates the longstanding Washington Law Against Discrimination and the Consumer Protection Act.
On June 26, 2015, in the case of OBERGEFELL v. HODGES, the Supreme Court of the United States held that, “There is no lawful basis for a State to refuse to recognize a lawful same-sex marriage performed in another State on the ground of its same-sex character.”
This is what the Bible has to say about the subject matter of this Supreme Court ruling.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Soon after, an organization called The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood officials offering fetus “body parts” for sale.
This is what the LORD has to say about killing babies.
Jer 7:31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.
Jer 7:32 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.
Jer 7:33 And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.
It does not take somebody as wise as Daniel the Prophet to read THE WRITING ON THE WALL!
There are a couple of famous occurrences, in the Book of Genesis, when the LORD stepped in and personally judged a group of people. First, was the story of the flood, where God destroyed nearly everyone on the face of the earth with water. Second, God directly judged the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha with fire. The Book of Jude explains what they both had in common:
Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
I will not judge anybody. I was a sinner saved by the grace of my LORD Jesus Christ just like ALL Christians. The only difference between me, or ANY Christian, and Jack the Ripper or Adolph Hitler is the GRACE of our LORD Jesus! However, there is a God in heaven and there appears to be a flash point in the Word of God that signals the direct intervention of God. It is the line of gross sexual perversion that God calls exceedingly wicked.
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Gen 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
The United States of America, clearly and without doubt, crossed the line in June of 2015. If you have not given your heart too Jesus Christ…NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!
Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
Isa 5:24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
However, I believe God’s method of “intervention” may be different than what we expect!
Jesus said something that the citizens of the world might believe was seriously Bizzare!
Mat 11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
Mat 11:24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
Huh! It seems pretty obvious that Jesus was saying that if He would have preached to the citizens of Sodom and performed the miracles that He had performed in Capernaum, they would have repented and been saved. While the ultra-religious citizens of Capernaum REJECTED JESUS!
Luk 15:1 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.
Luk 15:2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
Jesus Christ is the ORIGINAL SUPERMAN and He was sent to our world (BIZARRO WORLD) to do good and to intercede for humanity.
IS A BIG CRIME TO MAKE ANYTHING PERFECT ON BIZARRO WORLD! Jesus Christ is, was, and always will be PERFECT! Isn’t it odd that the publicans and sinners were drawn to this PERFECT MAN, but the Babylonian religious leaders of the time (Pharisees and Sadducees) hated Him and eventually convinced the Babylonian government of the time (Rome) to murder Him.
Listen to the PERFECT MAN:
LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, DO GOOD TO THEM WHICH HATE YOU, BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU, BE YE THEREFORE MERCIFUL, AS YOUR FATHER IS ALSO MERCIFUL, JUDGE NOT, AND YE SHALL NOT BE JUDGED: CONDEMN NOT, AND YE SHALL NOT BE CONDEMNED: FORGIVE, AND YE SHALL BE FORGIVEN.
I believe in the near future a group of SUPERMEN are going to be manifested on the earth. Not only will these SUPER SAINTS not want to sin, they will be so full of the CHRIST, they will NOT BE ABLE TO SIN! They will LOVE EVERYONE, even those who persecute and kill them.
Eph 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Just like Jesus, they will not judge and they will not condemn. They will be hated by the Babylonian religious leaders, and the Babylonian corporations, and the Babylonian governments. How can the Babylonian world system CONTROL people without guilt, condemnation, judgment, and FEAR?
DO YOU WANT TO BE A PERFECT MAN?
The more time a Christian spends fellowshipping with God by meditating on His Word and praying in tongues, the more they will be transformed from grace to grace into HIS IMAGE.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I have found that when I start judging people, I tend to stumble myself. I think it’s best to leave the judging to Jesus when He comes back, which will be sooner than most people think. We need to simply REST in the FINISHED work of Jesus Christ and trust the Holy Spirit to bear fruit in our lives…LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONG SUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, and TEMPERANCE.
Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Mat 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam (timber, log) that is in thine own eye?
